What can I expect?

What should I bring?

You will need to bring your instrument (drum or pipes) as well as your practice instrument (chanter or practice pad). We would also recommend bringing some writing material to take notes with. Sheet music will be provided.

How does the workshop work?

The  team of instructors will break the group of participants up into groups based on instrument and player standards. Each group then stays together over the 3 days and rotates through lessons with each instructor (for their instrument). So each person will get say 3 or more sessions with for example Jim Kilpatrick.  Over the 3 days each group works on technique, rudiments and they also learn a couple of tunes/drum scores.  All music is given out over the 3 days. Often there are also full group sessions (depending on the years schedule) where all players come together for a session that is relevant for all instruments (for example managing competition anxiety).
